The dealer just called stating that the splines were worn on the final dive and that they would replace it and lube everything up at no charge.

I find the Clymer easiest to use, but nothing beats the wiring diagrams of the Chilton's, and the Factory Service manual has the best description of each part and how it goes back together.
before you go knocking people, take the time to read stuff your self.

|Jamesoct1990||Factory scheduled maintince out of a service manual is a good point of reference. But it's just that, when the manufacture thinks the bike needs a little tlc. In reality a good maintaince scedual depends on a variety of factors. If its a new to me bike, or anything for that matter, I like to pull everything apart and check it for my self. This accomplished to things, I get filmiluar with my machine and I know everything is right. As to when to recheck everything, to me it makes since to take a little extra time to make sure everything's still in good shape and relube. Anytime you have to take a section of the bike apart. IMO that means lubing the splines every time I put a new tire on the rear roughly 10k miles. It just makes since to me to take the time while she's down to do the little things that most overlook till its to late. An ounce of prevention goes a long ways.|

Schedule maintenance, splines!
Talked to a dude at the Factory customer service. And he said the first one at 4000 miles and the next one at 24,000 miles, and every 20,000 miles there after. Claims he got it from the factory service manual. But I personally think the guy was screwing goobers!
